A group of about 100 bicycle riders with the Chapter IX Police Unity Tour made a stop at the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Southern precinct Tuesday morning as they made their way to Washington, D.C.
The ride which usually takes place in May and coincides with Police Week in Washington, D.C. was postponed in 2021 because of COVID.
The brief stop at the Southern precinct gave tour riders got a chance to regain their strength before getting back on the road. Members of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office and some tour riders participated in a brief wreath laying ceremony to honor the fallen officers of the Harford County Sheriff’s Office as well as those around the country who have died in the line of duty.
According to the group’s website, the mission of the Chapter IX Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty and raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum.
The tour plans to get back on its regular schedule next year resuming on May 9-14, 2022 with the planned stop in Harford County.
